Abstract: There are two independent molecules with similar configurations in the asymmetric unit of the title complex, [Pd(C4H3N2)I(C18H15P)2]. In each molecule, the geometry around the Pd atom is distorted square-planar, with the Pd atom displaced by 0.0549 (12) and 0.0734 (13) Å from the least-squares plane of the I-P-P-C atoms. The PPh3 ligands are in trans positions, with P-Pd-P angles of 173.12 (4) and 170.29 (4)°, while the pyrazinyl ligands and I atoms, also trans to each other, form C-Pd-I angles of 179.38 (12) and 178.44 (12)°. In the crystal, C-H...[pi] interactions occur, resulting in a three-dimensional supramolecular architecture.
